To begin making the Green Moong Dal And Vegetable Idli, first wash the moong dal and soak in 4 cups of water for 2 hours.
Wash urad dal and fenugreek seeds and soak them in sufficient water for 2 hours.
After 2 hours, drain and grind them separately by adding little water in a mixer grinder.
After grinding, add the dals to a large mixing bowl and mix both moong dal and urad dal mixture together using a spatula. Cover and let it ferment overnight or for 6 hours.
After 6 hours, add grated carrot, chopped capsicum and dill leaves and mix well. Add water if needed keeping in mind that the mixture should be thick like idli batter.
Grind coriander, ginger and green chillies by adding 2 tablespoon water to make a thick paste.
Mix this coriander paste into the prepared idli batter. Add salt and mix well.
The green moong and vegetable idli batter is ready. Let us now make the healthy idlis.
Grease the idli moulds and pour some the prepared batter into it.
Steam the idlis in an idli steamer and steam for 20 minutes.
After 20 Minutes, turn off the heat and let them be in the steamer for 5 more minutes.
After sometime, open the idli steamer, de-mould the idlis and serve hot.
